When Ben told me he was coming out with a new book I couldn’t wait to read it. I’ve read all of Ben’s poetry and story books, this one is worth the waiting. It’s about the world and the people of today. Drugs, murder, suicide, love and the worlds problems. I loved the story poem, “The Nights End”. Ben also collaborated with a few authors, a sweet surprise. Ford Forkum(love his work) and Susie Clevenger, another great poet. Take the time and download this awesome poetry book.
A powerful poetry book! War is inevitable because we have to stick up for ourselves and help those that can’t against those wanting to hurt us. Unfortunately we all know of someone whom wars have hurt, family, friends etc… This poetry book gives tribute to our our siblings past and present who have died so we can live. Those who are still here, mothers, sisters, brothers.. The author has done phenomenal job writing her feelings for all these soldiers and thier loved ones. Worth the read!!!
I have often wondered what tears look like
underneath a microscope, until I saw
how tears of grief were not glass shards,
those of hope did not skip like stones
or dance as I imagined tears of laughter,
flowing past a nonexistent bridge
composed of crying for the souls
we can’t replace.

This Night’s Farewell. By Clive Johnson
Regina Puckett I’ll Accept His Gift
Light peered over the treetops
Glistening off tiny dewdrops
A moment in time and space
A gift of God’s good grace
His voice was in the breeze
Knocking me to my knees
Today is a precious present
All He asks is for us to be content
So I’ll accept His gift and carry on
Before it’s too late and it’s gone
